2017 Open Civil Engineering Journal  
Common theme within the electric utility industry is doing more work with fewer resources. Shrinking staff resources and budgets create challenges in light of the continuing strong investment required for national lifeline infrastructure projects. Methods: The presentation will define and address one traditional type of waste -overproduction, particularly applied to the design of electric utility transmission structures. Results and Conclusion: It will illustrate a variety of typical design
